Exploring Shared Understandings of Affordable and Social Housing: Sydney and Delhi

This research will be undertaken in collaboration with Housing & Urban Development Corporation (HUDCO), India . The collaboration offers an opportunity for international research and the prospect of making a significant contribution to policy formulation at a very high level. The interaction of research and policy formulation with the major urban development organisation in India , will position UNSW and FBE to have an impact on urban issues in India , through significant knowledge transfer regarding affordable and social housing models and approaches.

This research collaboration will allow City Futures to better acquaint ourselves with the context of housing and planning in India , as well as allowing the joint Delhi-Sydney team to further refine the focus of the collaborative research venture and work out the details for an ARC International Linkage Grant application in 2007.
